Dead End

 I ran into a minor problem. The sign on the left says in essence that the road ends. I walked up a bit farther and found that the sign was correct. There was a fence completely block any passage.
 After retreating and taking a road much farther away from the river, I found that, after the next bridge, there was another road along the riverside. This picture shows a branch stream entering the river.
A few more paces and I could see up the branch stream. Not too many years ago, this area was farmland or just empty. Then people started building houses and commuting into Fukuoka. Now the area is getting more and more people; the town, machi, population just topped 50,000 for the first time. We are now getting an interesting mix of high rise apartment buildings and one and two story family dwellings.
